What are learning menus? This is our way of getting weekly information, class agendas, learning goals, and even links to assignments that would be expected each week. How to find? We have a learning menu button on our WMS home page! From there they are sorted by core team, health/pe, electives, and learning services menus. Why should I look at the learning menus? Have you ever asked your student "what did you do in school today?" The most common answer is "nothing". By checking the learning menus, you will have much better information to continue the conversation about school and learning with your student. This will help build your student's connection to school because you are taking the time to ask them about it! Also, learning menus give you information to check to make sure your student has all their work done, BEFORE it is late! Finally, if you know your student will miss school for whatever reason. The learning menus will show you what your student will be missing again hopefully before it is late. If you have questions, please reach out to your student's teachers or the office. https://middleschool.willistonschools.org/o/wms/page/learning-menu-links Thanks!
